Guildford Festival 2018
Surrey will host Somerset in the 80th anniversary of the Guildford Cricket Festival next June.
The first-class fixtures from the ECB, released late last month, have brought Woodbridge Road a four-day Specsavers County Championship Division One match starting on Wednesday June 20, although there will be no one-day game.
When the sides last met at Guildford, in 2006, records were smashed. Somerset achieved a new highest Championship total of 688-8dec at ... Continue reading →
What might be expected to be the quietest time of year for the club has been buzzing with activity in readiness for next season.
New club captain Tom Collins, who took over from Joe Pipkin in September has enlisted the support of Jeremy Greaves in a new role as first team manager.
Jeremy is a familiar face at the club – he was captain from 2012-2014 before moving to the role of coach, standing down last winter.
They will work closely with ... Continue reading →
New 1st XI team captain
Tom Collins has taken over as the new first team captain as Guildford prepare to win back a place in the Travelbag Surrey Championship Premier Division in 2018.
A desperately disappointing season saw the club finish ninth out of 10, winning just three games and losing 12 to finish 53 points short of safety, although relegation was not confirmed until the penultimate game of the season at Sunbury.
Next year will see Guildford in Division One for only ... Continue reading →

New Pavilion still not complete
Disapprovingly, construction delays mean that the new Pavilion will not be handed over until early October.
The building contractor and Guildford Borough (which owns the freehold of The Sports Ground under a charitable trust) remain committed to ensuring that the building will be completed to a very high standard and will be a superb facility for Guildford CC Members and the local community.
The delay has of course caused considerable disruption to the Club’s operations and ... Continue reading →
Nets throughout the summer
The last formal junior training was 28 July and Sunday 30th for the U8s.
The nets can still be used but players must be supervised by an adult at all times and must wear the appropriate safety kit. However, Senior Training takes place on Thursday evenings and Women’s Training on Wednesdays, so best to avoid those times.

“Stop Press” congratulations to the U15s and U13s as they complete a County Cup double!
The Cup story
The semi finals
The U15s travelled to Spencer and with 40 from Matty and a creative 26 from Harry totalled 123-9. Spencer looked well on the way to victory with an opening stand of 59 but a direct throw run out from the deep by Will changed the game and with Alex in tremendous form with the ball, 3-19, Guildford squeaked home ...
